Abstract

An assessment of humanist research behaviors and attitudes toward remote storage of collec-tions and technology was conducted at the University of Michigan Library. In an attempt to attenuate negative attitudes toward remote shelving through enhanced bibliographic access, project participants were given direct access to online systems containing records for stored titles. Results suggested this specific intervention was not successful given negative attitudes toward technology. However, attitudes toward the Library grew more positive and increased use of the remote shelving facility was reported. Finding are Interpreted in terms of faculty-librarian interactions and faculty acceptance of library programs.
